    2010 TRD Sport DC LB 4x4
    Work in progress, but installed so far; 265/70/17 Duratracs, Spidertrax, OME885X coils with OME lean spacer, OME N140S and N182 shocks, Wheeler's 1.5" 3 Leaf Progressive AAL (kept the overload), LR UCAs. TP14 spacers
    I was cleaning my truck last night and noticed that there were some significant scratches/scuffing on my front shocks (pics attached). I installed an OME lift (885Xs and N140S shocks) in May of 2011. LR UCAs and TP14 spacers were put on about five months later. Didn’t notice the marks when I was putting the UCAs and spacers on, so it may have developed r.

    Near as I can tell the marks are coming from the shroud on the shocks and not due to contact with the springs. The scuffing is also more significant on the driver side than the passenger side. Anyone else seen this? I’m less concerned about the cosmetic issue of the scratches and more worried about this being an indicator of a potential issue.
